After Scarlett Johansson vs Disney, it's Robert Pattinson vs DC now
- It is said that Pattinson isn’t 100 percent happy with the way DC is handing the upcoming Batman movie
- Since being announced more than seven years ago, ‘The Batman’ has gone through a lot of ups and downs
- The movie is set to released in 2022
Robert Pattinson, who has played Edward Cullen in Twilight movie, continues to define his career in many ways. He has been cast to play Batman/Bruce Wayne in the upcoming movie ‘The Batman’ which is set to be released in 2022. However, it appears that the actor sn’t 100 percent happy with the way DC is handing the project.
According to We Got This Covered, Pattinson isn’t happy with the fact that more than one Batman movie will be released around the same time. The Flash, starring Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton, will be released just eight months before ‘The Batman’.
Though Pattinson has already signed a lucrative deal with DC for the movie, so his pockets are going to be find even if it’s a flop. But it won’t be wrong to say that no actor wants to have a bad movie attached to their name. Since this is arguably Pattinson’s biggest role since Twilight, it could serious damage his career so it’s clear that he has a lot riding on this project.
Since being announced more than seven years ago, ‘The Batman’ has gone through a lot of ups and downs. Initially, Ben Affleck was slated to be the film’s star, director, and co-writer. In 2017, he stepped down as the director and co-writer, and Matt Reeves took on both roles. Once he took charge, Reeves began to refocus the movie’s story on a younger version of Batman.
In 2019, Affleck decided to remove himself from the project completely, and Robert Pattinson was cast to play the leading role. The Batman was initially scheduled to be released in June 2021, but its date was pushed back twice due to COVID-19. It will now be released on March 4, 2022 provided there are no other hiccups along the way.
